Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in Tennessee but most of my father's ancestors; McWhirter, Shaw, Whitehead, Harper, Anthony, Robinson, Gann & others, lived in Alabama while most of my Mother's ancestors; Bridges, Langston, Byrd, Brock, Moore, etc., lived in Mississippi and some ventured on over to Birmingham, Jefferson County, Alabama. My Father was born in Guin, Marion Co., AL and Mother was born in Sapa, Webster Co., MS

Concerning Links, Corrections and Transfer Request: Please use the "EDIT" in the top right of the memorials because it will have the memorial number and the contributor number on it which makes it easier to update, link relatives or transfer memorials. If you are asking for a transfer please state your connection to the individual. Most of the memorials I have submitted are related to me but there are others I submitted who served in the 1st Alabama Cavalry, US Volunteers which I will be happy to transfer to a descendant.

It is my belief that Thomas T. Byrd(b. 24 Dec 1729) and wife Jane Couts of Robertson County, TN, had a son Thomas T. Byrd (ca 1769),who was the one that married Jane Lynn, daughter of Adam Lynn. Adam Lynn deeded property in 1790, who were all living in Davidson County, TN, to Thomas Byrd. Testifying is Andrew Ewing. Adam Lynn's wife is Sydney Ann Ewing. This would make Thomas 21 years old, when the property was deeded to him. Adam Lynn was born in 1750. His daughter, Jane, would have been about 1775. I could be wrong but this is my opinion.

Hello Ms. Todd. It's nice to hear from you again. Regarding your request for transfer, I was wondering what kind of biography you were planning to add to his memorial? Will it have more information than is on the website? Thanks, Yarbrough Hunter

For some reason, your name wasn't on your profile. I thought I'd discovered yet another family member. After I sent the message, I saw your name. Now I have a chance to say thank you for all the information you've given me regarding Hassie's family. You'll be happy to know that I'm finishing up the paperwork for entrance into DAR and I meet with the chapter next month for the vote. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for all your help. I couldn't have done any of this without you. You are such a treasure and blessing.

I'm sure we are related and I would like to know how we are related. I have Dodd, McWhirter, Whitehead, Tucker, etc... in my family. I would LOVE to get to know you! You posted those pictures of Hassie on her memorial and I have those very same pictures! Hassie is my Great Grandmother. I'm the granddaughter of Veno and Opal Dodd. I look forward to hearing from you. God bless you and yours.....

Caleb Washington Todd

My name is Craig B. Todd. Caleb Washington Todd is my ggg grandfather. I have been trying to find documentation for over 10 years on were he is buried. Today I came across your posting showing that he is buried at the Compton Cemetery.I descend from his son William Lewis Todd. Do you have any records or documentation of his burial? If so i would love to get copies if possible. I have always wanted to find his grave and have a stone placed.

Thank You,

Craig Todd

Robert Harper
Hello Glenda, I wanted to tell you that I created memorials on Robert Harper (133055304) Nancy Lane Harper and their oldest son Ruben J Harper at Jackson Cemetery near Collinwood, TN. Just two weeks ago I was visiting home (Florence AL) drove up to Wayne Co. TN to photograph. Robert and Nancy are my Great-Great Grandparents. Their youngest child, Martha Savannah Green Harper is my GGM. I became interested in doing this because of his story and because I became convinced the memorial for Robert B Harper buried at Stones River National was Not OUR Robert Harper. I wrote to the 1st Alabama Cavalry website, and that photo was removed at my request. I wrote a bio on the Robert Harper memorial I create here and I would love for you to review it. I've "tweeked" it many times but your suggestions would be welcomed. Also as a point of interest, William W. Miles, Woodruff Miles and Benjamin R Miles are my 2nd GG Uncles. Their brother Calvin Miles who was conscripted to join the CSA is my GGGF. Needless to say, I would enjoy hearing from you. Email is
Blessings to you,
Vicki Miles Penchosky

Francis was my GGF
Dear GMT,
The photo is the first I have ever seen of my great grandfather and great grandmother. My dad was a son of William Henry Halcomb.

If there are others I would love to see them. Thank you.
